This Thursday, June 15th, The Jazz Gallery is proud to welcome drummer Kenneth Salters and his band Haven back to our stage for two sets. Salters has established himself as one of the true chameleons in New York’s music scene, as comfortable playing with jazz groups, hybrid new-music groups like Andy Akiho’s Foundry, and even the Boston Pops Orchestra with Tony award-winning singer Leslie Odom, Jr.
As a composer, Salters’s main outlet is Haven, a group filled with similarly-versatile instrumentalists that allow Salters to explore myriad musical ideas and forms. Before coming to the Gallery to check what new material the group has been working through, check out our previous interview with Salters and the video describing Haven’s debut record, Enter to Exit, below.
Kenneth Salters Haven plays The Jazz Gallery on Thursday, June 15th, 2017. The group features Mr. Salters on drums, Dayna Stephens on tenor saxophone, Myron Walden on bass clarinet & alto saxophone, Matt Holman on trumpet/flugelhorn, Aki Ishiguro on guitar, Brad Whiteley on piano, and Matt Penman on bass. Sets are at 7:30 and 9:30 P.M. $15 general admission (FREE for members) for each set. Purchase tickets here.
